Study: Higher Percentage Moved Out of CT Last Year Than in 46 Other States

United Van Lines released their latest inbound/outbound moving study, which confirmed people are leaving Dan Malloy's Connecticut in droves.

United Van Lines confirmed, on Tuesday, what a lot of people in Connecticut already know: their friends and neighbors are movin’ out.

Connecticut was the fourth-highest “outbound” state in 2017, according to United Van Lines. Connecticut was classified a “high outbound” state, meaning “55 percent or more moves were coming out of a state” rather than in.

About 57 percent of moves in Connecticut were outbound, and only 43 percent were inbound. Only Illinois, New Jersey, and New York had higher outbound percentages.

Of those moving out, 62 percent made more than $100,000 last year, which may be contributing to Connecticut’s perpetual revenue problems.
